140209-2050 - AZRRT CALL TO ACTION

 

Special note on SB1270: As of Friday, we did not have any testimony at the Senate Judiciary Committee in favor of this bill, even though the alert went out Wednesday. The other side, however, had plenty of testimony against SB1270, led by representatives of the AFL/CIO and the SEIU. Then, the RTS site has been down all week-end, so we have not been able to enter any testimony of our own. Maybe the site will be up Monday morning so that we may be able to act before the 2:00 PM hearing.

(*) Comments: Important info on HB2196. This bill, if passed, will repeal the provisions of last year’s HB2305.That bill established some very good restrictions on electioneering abuses. The reason that we want it repealed by the legislature is that the liberals succeeded in placing the provisions of 2305 on the 2014 ballot. If they succeed in repealing 2305, it will be 99.9% impossible to bring back those provisions. On the other hand, if the legislature repeals 2305, then the legislature can bring its provisions back and have another chance at making them stick. It is important that we pass HB2196.

NOTE: The HB2049 vote was along party line, with one exception. Rep. Bob Robson “crossed the isle” and cast the deciding NO vote that sabotaged this bill.

This the same Robson that last session, as chairman of the Rules Committee, misused his power and “held” all bills that attempted to curtail abuses of public sector unions.

This is the same Robson that was part of the gang of 15 that unconstitutionally passed the Medicaid expansion bill.

(*) There are differences of opinions among our ranks regarding this bill. Here are the arguments in a nutshell:

PRO: Ballot measures are serious business. Once enacted they are virtually impossible to reverse. Extreme caution must be exercised and voters must be advised of this so that they do the research and become well informed before casting vote.

CON: This is nothing more than a thin veiled attempt by the state legislature to discourage citizen participation. They think that they know best what is good for us. We the people can not always rely on politicians to vote according to our wishes.

Looking forward to the updates on this site. Can't wait to find out how the 3 Musketeers voted on key issues (Robson, Dial and McComish). Time for their ouster to take place as they have not exhibited Conservative values these past years. Shame on them!

GOD, PLEASE BLESS AMERICA!  AMERICA, PLEASE BLESS GOD.
